André Butzer is one of Germany's most relevant contemporary artists who founded the Akademie Isotrop in Hamburg. Butzer continues to work with prestigious institutions such as MUMOK, the Kunsthalle Nuernberg, and works in the collections of MOCA Los Angeles, LACMA, Collection Goetz and the Scharpff Collection, among others.
A self-proclaimed "colorist", Butzer's body of work has progressed from chromatically-intense large-scale figurative painting to pop-culture references, to seemingly "minimalist" black and white abstract paintings, all of which are allude to "NASAHIEM", Butzer's created non-imaginable, non-picture-able space from which all his paintings begin in and move toward.
